Description Known as the Kingdom of Mysore until this princely state was absorbed into the Union of India on August 15, 1947 and restyled the State of Mysore in 1948. A nationwide movement to bind Indian states by shared language culminated into the States Reorganization Act of November 1, 1956. The Act reconstituted Mysore State into a linguistically homogeneous Kannada-speaking territory. With the passing of the Mysore State Act in 1973, the state emerged with the new name of 'Karnataka' (derived from kar, "black", and nadu, "country", in Dravidian).

Capital is Bangalore.
